The Autumn can be a really exciting time – as the nights draw in, events like Diwali, Halloween, Bonfire Night and even the Christmas holiday feel just around the corner. But Bonfire Night in particular can be very dangerous, cause damage to property and make people feel vulnerable. So, every year, we work with our partners at Newcastle City Council, Northumbria Police and Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue service to try to make our city as safe as possible. Last year the campaign resulted in 80 tonnes of combustible waste being removed from YHN estates and it was reported by Northumbria Police that there was a 29% reduction in incidents involving fireworks and bonfires. In the run up to Bonfire Night, we’ve organised a number of events to help you dispose of any combustible materials you may have stored in your garden or sheds to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands and ending up on an illegal bonfire and causing damaged to estates. Doing this will help to keep your estate safe and pleasant for everyone, but it doesn’t mean you have to miss out completely – attend an organised display and you get all of the fun without the danger! Caged wagons will be available to collect waste at various places across the city from next week – see below for details of collections in your area (they are listed by local housing office) East End Scarborough Road, Byker – 26th October 2016 between 9am and 1.30pm.
